The Journey Starts Here

First-Year Convocation is for all first-year students and serves as the official kickoff to students' academic careers at Auburn University. Convocation usually takes place on the Sunday afternoon prior to fall classes starting. Students will be notifide via email about the particulars closer to the time. Upon arrival, students will be directed to the assigned to their academic college and will receive their class t-shirt colored for that college. Convocation will feature several speakers from all across campus who will instill the values and expectations of the Auburn Creed. All attendees are invited to a celebration on the arena green space after Convocation concludes. Food will be provided.

All faculty are invited to attend and may sit with their students in their designated section or in the VIP seats on the floor. Faculty are also invited to attend the celebration meal afterwards on the arena green space.

Convocation is required for all incoming first-year students to attend.
